In the first episode, Lorin Symington shares how his family came up with the idea of this solar concentrator, how he gets to know the cultures in the different countries he visits and what motivates him. It was recorded between Burkina-Faso and Finland at the end of 2020.
Solar Fire is a story of friendship, family and love. Our group of friends created a company in Finland in 2012. In this podcast series you have the chance to get to know the Solar Fire team, our motivation and dreams.
The Solar Fire adventure started a long time ago. It's the journey of a group of six very motivated people who decided to really do something about climate change. The Lytefire solar tech we promote is a unique piece of the energy mix to decentralize energy, decarbonize the economy and fight deforestation.
Lytefire is a simple and powerful design meant to harness the heat of the sun by concentrating it on an oven or any other application (roaster, boiler, etc). The Symington family planted the first seeds with the very first solar concentrators developed by Lorin's grandfather. Over the years and the different projects, the tech evolved a lot and became Lytefire.
Lytefire is currently spread to vulnerable populations through cooperation with NGO's and educational programs. In Europe, entrepreneurs have started to adopt it to power their small businesses.
